Wildhorse Foundation awarded Junior Achievement of Washington, Southeastern Region, a $3,000 grant to support JA financial literacy programs in schools across the Walla Walla Valley during the 2019-2020 school year.
Through JA’s life-relevant programs, students in grades K-12 will continue to learn all about money, the importance of being able to manage their personal finances, and how their financial decisions today will affect their financial freedom in the future.
They’ll learn about budgeting, earning money, savings, credit and debit, consumer protection, smart shopping, risk management and investing and saving for retirement.
Wildhorse Foundation is a community benefit fund established by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation to support organizations in Northeastern Oregon and Southeastern Washington.
The Foundation receives 3 percent of net gaming revenues from Wildhorse Resort & Casino to award grants, distributed quarterly in equal amounts. Since 2001, more than 2,013 local and regional nonprofits have benefited from the $12 million given by the Foundation in seven different counties.
